We stayed in baches a number of times so we know what they are like and we have always appreciated their charm and simplicity. This one however was below any acceptable standard. The place is in a lovely position, and we acknowledge that this is what we probably paid for, but it is a shame that it is so neglected. The bathroom in particular was really awful and the whole place could do with a thorough clean. Despite constant airing we could not get rid of the musty smell in the bedrooms.

Its really the location you're paying for with this bach. The property itself is very rustic and needs attention.
Perfect location by the beach and elevation with great views
Perfect location by the beach and elevation with great views. Classic kiwiana, like stepping back in time. Quirky. Peaceful.
Great location on the beach
Great location on the beach. Very relaxing, quiet street.
We feel the place needs some TLC. There wasn't enough linen, would of been nice to have extra bath towels/hand towels.
There were a couple of other issues which we'll pass onto the Property Manager for them to address.
At $270 a night we expected a clean bach
At $270 a night we expected a clean bach. What we found was a place that was poorly maintained, dirty and infested with ants. We found an ants' nest on the pelmet in the bedroom; obviously the pelmet had not been cleaned for years, If you are turned on by DIY cleaning, take a bottle of wine and a dozen fly spray, otherwise avoid.
This property is cleaned to a high standard each stay. The price reflects the location of the bach, the bach is an older traditional kiwi bach that has been loved and enjoyed by families over the summer.

The bach itself is simple - the bathroom is outside (albeit very close), as is the third bedroom, and the kitchen is basic. But the location is simply FABULOUS and that's what you pay for :)) It's a good kiwi bach, reasonably well equipped, and well worth it for a family who don't need a fancy place to stay, but enjoy being a couple of steps from the beach :)
